Supramolecular Dendrimers

Individual dendritic compounds can be linked together to form larger structures called supramolecular deruirimers, and this linking procedure can be carried out by a process called supramolecular self-assembly. As an example consider the dendrimer in die upper left corner of Fig. 11.20, in which die core consists of a central benzene ring associated with a complicated aromatic, polycyclic complex attached 'above it, plus two branched wedges shown bifurcated below it To simplify die notation, this dendrimer is presented in abbreviated form in the upper right corner with a boldfaced triangle representing the complicated complex attached to the central benzene ring. The lower part of the figure shows a supramolecular dendritic complex
